Kid Friendly Thanksgiving Turkey


pumpkin turkey day

It’s almost turkey time! Looking for something that’s fun, tasty and absolutely adorable?  (As seen on My FOX Austin’s Make it Monday)

Well I have just the thing! This cute turkey is hands on for the kids, healthy and tasty. Good for an activity as well as a centerpiece.

The turkey body is made from a pie pumpkin. The top is cut off, insides scooped out and filled with a glass ice cream dish. The turkey head is a cutout from a Thanksgiving centerpiece. To  make it easier for little hands, use an ice pick to pre-cut the wholes for the wooden skewers.

To make the skewers, have pre-cut fruit and veggies ready and thread on bamboo skewers. Baby corn, grape tomatoes and olives are fun additions.

The pumpkin dip is simple as well.
